Greek police name murder and rape suspect of US scientist

In a statement made on Thursday, Greek police have identified the suspect accused of the brutal killing and rape of American scientist Suzanne Eaton.

Yiannis Paraskakis, 27, was named by local police in a tweet on Thursday.

Paraskakis has been charged with the rape and murder of Eaton, 59, who disappeared on July 2 while attending a conference near Chania and whose body was found six days later in an abandoned underground storage site used during World War II.

Police said the suspect told them he had hit Eaton twice with his car before abducting her, then raping and murdering her.

A public prosecutor waived the suspect’s privacy rights citing public safety concerns, and the need to assist an investigation of his possible involvement in other offenses.
